The best way to get to know Marchena is to start in the Old Plaza, and from there enter the historic city centre by the fabulous la rosa Arch. You can then wander in the back streets to see its churches, some of them of great historic value, such as those of Santa maría de Mota and San Juan Bautista (both of mudejar style); San Miguel ; San Agustin, san Sebastian and Santo Domingo.

The best time for seeing this impressive complex of religious art is during Holy Week which has been declared of National Tourist Interest in Andalusia. Open your ears at the passage of the images people will be singing moving saeta songs from every corner.
